Baildon Boundary Way

In very heavy conditions (2 inches of mud stuck to the bottom of your shoes before even reaching the start line) 9 men and 3 ladies completed the Baildon Boundary Way the first of the 2006 off-road club championship races. Andy Hudson ran strongly to finish in 48th and Neill Lloyd completed his 12th consecutive boundary way in 92nd (now the only competitor to have run every race since it started) and Nicola Hudson completed her longest race ever more than double her previous longest! (Nicola if your going to do a half marathon your supposed to pick an easier one than that!):
